[While they are interesting and provide a starting point, there are many lack-luster beaches with nothing to see that can knock your socks off.
One such example, in my view, is the Race Point. Although it is considered by many an excellent fishing place, you are looking at a couple of miles (maybe less) of a non-descript sandy stretch of a shore. What structure?
And, as you say, you can't really see anything from where you are unless you hire a helicopter. When I came to fish there for the first time, I had no clue where to make my first cast (I have to admit that I am still not clear abt it so I usually try different spots).
